Dear all,
  Some functions like 'ROC(Epi)' can be used to perform ROC analyssi, but it needs us to specify the fitting model in the argument. Now i have got the predicted p-values (0,1) for the 0/1 response variable using some other approach, see the following example dataset:

id mark predict.pvalue

1 1 0.927

2 0 0.928

3 1 0.928


*mark* is the true classes, *predict.pvalue* is the predicted p-values, which was used to determine the predicted classes. So i need to specify some cut points for *predict.pvalue*, and then compare it with *mark*class, generate the 2*2 tables, and then calculate some sensitivity, specifity....statistcs, and ROC curve.
 I have searched some functions, such as roc(analogue),'ROC(Epi),etc. They may need to specify the fitting model in the codes or group varibles, and may be not appropriate for my condition. I think that it should have been performed in some package for ROC analysis.   Anybody can tell me which function is for this case?   Thanks very much.

With Kind Regards,
